Operators are gutting parts of the Tahoe Queen to refurbish its hull.    

Aramark Parks director Austin Sass says the job involves taking out a walk-in freezer and several kitchen grilles to make room for repairs that should be finished by May.

The Tahoe Queen is due for a major inspection by the U. S. Coast Guard that comes once every five years.

Sass says a dozen boatmen were offered other resort jobs with the Tahoe Queen laid up for repairs.

The Mississippi-style paddlewheel boat normally offers year-round cruises at Lake Tahoe.
